Provides 4 ports for instant connectivity and amazing performance with your eSATA peripherals.
Add the 4-port LaCie eSATA II PCI Express Card to your computer for instant connectivity and amazing performance with your eSATA peripherals. The card offers 4 external eSATA connectors, and runs at speeds up to 3Gb per second, making it among the best interface choices for professionals who demand high speed data transfer.
By including 4 eSATA 3Gb/s ports, the LaCie eSATA II PCI Express Card 3Gb/s card can combine up to 4 hard disks together to create a versatile and powerful RAID array. For example, using the LaCie 4big Quadra, you can set up each hard disk in a hardware RAID 5 mode, then combine them together into a software RAID 0 mode (with the help of the host computer)**, making this configuration comparable to a RAID 50 array. This allows for enhanced disk failure protection, speed up to 700MB/s, and up to 24TB capacity (with four 8TB LaCie 4big Quadra drives to each card).
